Our Envirowoolly® story...
First came the “Critter”, cute little toys made from scrap woolen offcuts, destined for our factory outlet shop.
Our latest innovation is the “Envirowoolly” range of Australian animals, which is aimed at the niche local tourist market. We currently produce a Tassie Devil, Tassie Tiger, Koala, Wombat, Platypus and both a black and a white sheep. Envirowoollys fill a gap in the market for locally made animals which appeal to our growing tourist industry.
